Since 1954, when Aprilaire introduced the first whole-home humidifier, they have been the industry leader in ducted whole house humidification. The Aprilaire 700 fan powered automatic humidifier has led the charge in home comfort.
With an 18 gallon per day output, the Aprilaire 700 can humidify a home up to 4,200 square feet. This unit mounts directly to the duct of your heating and cooling system, allowing the humidity to be placed into the airflow and distributed evenly throughout the home. The 700 humidifier hooks up to a water line so you do not need to worry about filling it multiple times a day. With a built in fan the humidifier pulls warm air directly from the furnace, increasing its effectiveness.

The 76 automatic controller that comes standard with the Aprilaire 700 humidifier mounts directly to the ductwork of your heating and cooling system to accurately read and deliver the appropriate amount of humidity. Equipped with notification lights, you are alerted if your humidifier is not working properly (red), needs a new #35 water panel (yellow), or is working properly (green). Sensing the outdoor temperature and the indoor humidity level, the automatic humidistat will call for the ideal amount of indoor humidification to ensure you and your family are as comfortable as possible.
The 700 humidifier by Aprilaire requires a plenum opening of 14 3/4" by 14 5/16". For electrical reference, this unit operates on 120 Volts at 60Hz with a .8 AMP requirement. Due to the nature of evaporative humidification this unit can be installed on either the supply or return duct of the heating and cooling system. If the Aprilaire humidifier is being installed on a heat pump system it is best to hook the unit up to a hot water line.
Using a genuine Aprilaire #35 water panel is highly suggested. This water panel was designed specifically for the Aprilaire 700 humidifier and provides the most comfortable and efficient output. Don't trust the aftermarket products to provide the same quality and overall experience as the genuine #35 water panel.
Aprilaire recommends a #4750 maintenance kit be used each humidification season to ensure that your 700 humidifier is operating optimally.
